Bulletproof Home Security System
Attackers are continually trying to find ways to bypass the protection barriers in security mechanisms. Bank robbers are constantly searching for ways to bypass traditional burglar alarms so that they can steal money without being detected. In the same way, attackers are continually trying to find ways to attack your network without being detected. Understanding the following common evasion techniques helps you ensure that these avenues do not create weaknesses in your overall security posture
All of these ideas come back to the idea of deterrence. The reason violent crime isn't completely rampant in most parts of the world (setting aside theories about the inherent goodness of human nature) is that if you commit such a crime, there is a high likelihood that you will be caught and severely punished. Even though the windows of my house could easily be broken and a burglar could steal from me, I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it because my town has good police protection and my neighbors keep an eye out for one another. In addition, I have insurance that protects most of my physical property.
As with many things, the security of a network is only as good as the weakest security level of any single device in the system. Having a layered approach to security can slow an intruder and allow detection of him or her. Having a big lock is good, but if that lock is your only line of defense, you might want to consider adding motion sensors, a dog, outside lights, a home security system, and nosy neighbors This is a simplistic analogy, but it is always harder to be a criminal when many barriers must be overcome.
Security measures keep people honest in the same way that locks do. Cyber-thieves by nature go after the least-defended part of a network. Consider this analogy. In a neighborhood where 25 percent of the homes have home security systems, thieves target the least-defended homes (those without security systems) first. This analogy fits well with networking. When a hacker is doing reconnaissance (for example, port scanning, nmap, and so on) against potential targets, a percentage of these hackers are going to go after the easy-to-target networks. Another small percentage has an issue with a potential target and goes after that target regardless of the perceived issue.
Cisco routers have two different types of banners login and EXEC. Both of these banners should be enabled with a stern warning that all access attempts are logged, and unauthorized attempts to penetrate the system will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Placing a warning about logging all attempts at access is the equivalent of placing a home security system placard on your front lawn. Even if you do not log access, it might discourage some attempts. The name of the company, the IP address, or any other information that unnecessarily reveals information about your system should not be included on the banner. A sample banner is as follows
Internet or other companies, thereby mitigating the address space problem, allowing a huge number of nodes to access external internetworks. However, NAT is not always easy to implement and maintain. Some applications create excessive processing requirements on the NAT device, and other applications do not work at all. Furthermore, future Internet appliances, such as personal digital assistants, home security systems, or car maintenance computers, might require globally routable addresses so that they can be accessed from any Internet location.
